Lansky's PS-MED01 looks very much like Smith's Pocket Pal, which I have used and recommended as a good kit item for blade repair and quick sharpening of most blades. But the Smith has a plastic body while the Lansky's is metal, so the Lansky is heavier.
The Lansky is also longer, which means that its tapered diamond rod is longer as well - a good thing. As with the Smith, the tapered diamond rod can be pulled from its stay and rotated 180 degrees to a locked open position for use as a diamond file (sharpening hard to reach items, serrations, etc.). The Lansky rod's longer length gives advantage in use.
The Lansky's length afforded mounting an almost 2 inch length of exposed ceramic bar on angle to the sharpener body. This ceramic bar has a rounded-point cross section to engage and sharpen most serrated edge scallops; of course it can be used as a ceramic rod to fine-sharpen any edge as well. I've done both with good result.
The Lansky, like the Smith, also includes "Vee" sharpening notches of carbide (for edge repair or sharpening a rough-use edged knife) and of ceramic (for easy fine sharpening to a good edge). These Vee's are set at 40 degrees compound, which means the sharpening surfaces are at 20 degrees from the center line of the Vee; this is standard for a sharp, yet strong edge. Not all knives have secondary grinds of 20 degrees, however. You may be blunting a knife with a super fine bevel of 15 degrees, or only grinding away at the bevel shoulder of a "hard use" knife with bevel of 25 degrees.
Caution using these Vee's - the body is metal versus the Smith's plastic, so take care not to press downward strongly when using a Vee; these are meant to be drawn through, not sawn through.

I bought one of these to sharpen my Cold Steel knives.

Cold Steel uses AUS-8A Stainless Steel on most of their knives and they arrive sharp, but with some time and patience I can get my knives sharp enough to push cut newspaper, store receipts, phone book paper, etc...

Some people have complained that the tapered Diamond Rod doesn't stay in place, but maybe they are not pushing them into the opening hard enough as their is a little metal tang that holds the Diamond Rod in place.

I mainly use the "Ceramic" sharpening slot to put a very sharp edge on my knives, although my g/f had some kitchen knives that required a few strokes thru the "Carbide" slot, then a few strokes thru the "Ceramic" slot.

I've also used the Ceramic bar on fine Serrations and it works just fine.

I've also used the Diamond Rod on my Serrated knives, but be careful as a slip can put a scratch on your knife.

With some patience and some time, like during TV commercials, it's easy to put a very sharp edge on just about any knife unless it's junk Stainless Steel that is used on cheap knives.

There is a provision for a Lanyard as well although I don't use it but others may find it handy.

Based on price, quality, usefulness and versatility, I give this sharpener a 5/5 as I have used it extensively and it still puts a very sharp edge on my knives at a very low price.

Really wish I could give it 3.5 stars, but more 3 than 4 stars.

Regular pocket knife is a Victorinox. With a whetstone or diamond block I can get a good edge though maybe not quite shaving good. However, what happens is I get a good edge and use it, and over half the time it isn't that good and sharp. Hoped this would help. It does. I can give it three or 4 strokes once a week, and keep a good though not great edge on it. Which means most of the time it is sharper than it otherwise would be. Quite handy.

A couple of my real high quality knives can get a really nice shaving edge on them. And I haven't used this as it clearly wouldn't accomplish that. I use a diamond coated stone instead.

Now if you have an abused or super cheap blade, this will dress it up fairly good, quickly and painlessly. You can stroke it a few times and get a decent usable blade. I have a cheap lockable folder I carry when kayaking. Not wanting to risk my fine knives, it keeps such quite decently, workable sharp edges without much time or fanfare.

Some complain of the weight, it is metal, but it isn't really heavy. I like it myself. Much better than plastic encased sharpeners. The diamond tapered part is hinged in plastic. Really poor decision. Hasn't been a problem yet, but it would have been much nicer if that had a metal hinge point.

The one I got had a knot or spot on the serrated long ceramic sharpener up top. I used a diamond stone on a another sharpener to smooth it out and all is fine.

So for junk or abused blades the carbide can clean it up, the ceramic can put a workable good edge on it. Up top is a ceramic strip for serrated blades, and the conical diamond coated sharpener for fine serrated edges.

I ordered this as a backup sharpener. Now that I've had it for a couple of months and used it several times, it is now my go to sharpener. Very well built and gives a great edge on my SOG, Kershaw, etc. Would definitely recommend.
